How you prepare

By Mayo Clinic Staff

How you prepare for a SPECT scan depends on your particular situation. Ask your health care team whether you need to make any special preparations before your SPECT scan.

In general, you should:

  • Leave metallic jewelry at home
  • Inform the technologist if you're pregnant or breast-feeding
  • Bring a list of all the medications and supplements you take
